A multi-disciplinary art and mental health exhibition that examines the different dimensions of the human connection, the works reflect upon the subtle dynamics and invisible forces that cause a rift between our internal worlds and external expression. Through the documentation of performative, instructional and participatory art, the artists and participants individually and collectively came together to share, to discuss, to feel, to confront, and to heal. Through a group effort where safe spaces were created for them to look inwards, participants could confront their personal truths and difficult emotions.
The pieces in this exhibition reflect courage, love, and the immense power a person can have when they return to their authenticity and innocence once again.
Beneath the hustle and bustle of city life, what is the rhythm that really moves us? Beneath the elaborate sights and sounds we construct, what stories do we really want to tell? Beneath the fragile harmony we hold, what is the void that exists between, and within us?
7 bodies of work will be showcased which meditate on stories of personal truths, from pain, loss and vulnerability that are too often unheard and unsaid. In a year of intense isolation and distance, our message is this: genuine connection knows no boundaries.

ThisConnect: Threading Worlds is a multidisciplinary art exhibition that is held in conjunction with Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. The exhibition features works by the social artist duo Hunny & Lummy led by artists Hun Ming Kwang and Quinn Lum Fu Loong.
The 2 bodies of works, namely Tipping Point and I Feel You, focuses on the theme of human connections and our ability to be our authentic beings and truer selves. The works reflect the subtle dynamics and invisible forces that influence our experiences as we go through life, carrying the burdens of our emotional baggage from the past and present; struggling to fill the void of the deep-seated stories that have been left unsaid. The stories of loss, pain and vulnerability are often misaligned between our internal worlds and external worlds, and even more so when we leave little room to breathe in the hustle and bustle of life.
Through the documentation of performative, instructional and participatory art, the artists and participants individually and collectively went into a healing process within the safe space created. They looked inwards into their selves to return to their most authentic beings, and to confront their personal truths and difficult emotions repressed by trauma and misalignment so that healing can take place. The pieces of work reflect courage, love, and the greatest power a person can have as they return to their most authentic being and innocence once again.
This exhibition is a prelude to a complete exhibition that will happen on 15 December 2020 – 15 January 2021.
